Another author, Ronnie S. Landau, put forward a similar definition in his book, The Nazi Holocaust: 'The Holocaust involved the deliberate, systematic murder of approximately 6 million Jews in Nazi-dominated Europe between 1941 and 1945."

(It is sometimes said the use of the term for the Nazi genocide of the Jews was popularized by Elie Wiesel from the late 1950s on).Note the term Holocaust does not refer only to murder in death camps, but also to mass open-air shootings (of which there were many in Eastern Europe) and to deliberate starvation in ghettos.
